The 2nd Luxperience, which will take place in Sydney 1-4 September, is sold out. To cope with demand for floor space Luxperience has added more premium space for exhibitors at the entrance to the venue, the Overseas Passenger Terminal on Sydney Harbour.
The space sold is up by over 50% on the inaugural high-end travel show which took place last September.
Luxperience organisers said the sharp spike in support was due to favourable feedback from the inaugural event. For example, Tourism Australia watched the first Luxperience from the sidelines last year. This year it stepped in as an official supporter to boost international and domestic awareness of the country’s high-end travel options.
Some 26,000 buyer-seller ‘workshop’ meetings, each of 15 minutes, will take place during the event, which uses special software to match exhibitors with buyers. Apart from a diverse range of products from Australia and New Zealand, buyers will also meet with suppliers from Bhutan, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Patagonia, Chile and the Philippines. Expedition cruising in Australasia and South America will be a notable addition this year.
New direct air links with South America have attracted buyers and sellers that weren’t present last year. An added focus on MICE and incentive travel has also boosted exhibitor demand.
